An average Vinmonopol store. They have the beer selection you would expect to find in a Norwegian city. (Visited August 3rd 2013)

Visited in June 2013. Very centrally located store, around 250 meters from my hotel. (Radisson Caledonien) The selection was ok at least for being a Vinmonopolet store, about 10 different beers from Nøgne Ø. The young lady in the staff was very friendly and service minded. Not surprisingly, prices were high.

Centrally located Vinmonopol , dont expect to find something special, even though they had something from bestillingsutvalget on my last visit. Rather small store.

The biggest problem regarding beer above 4.75% ABV in Norway, is that you have to go to Vinmonopolet stores to buy. Of course there are bars, but you’ll have to drink your beer before leaving. In Kristiansand, this one’s the most interesting considering selection and location. There’s one other store with approx the same selection, but that’s not located downtown. As at most Vinmonopolet stores, the staff know nothing about beer, but there’s one or two that will try to guide a novice. i guess you’re better off doing your own choices, picking the most interesting Norwegian beers here. Quite a few Haandbryggeriet and Nøgne Ø beers are available, and also a sober choice of foreign beers. For the ticker, there’s also some strong macro lagers, and also some decent Norwegian bock beers. So, why do I prefer this store to the other local stores? Mostly because it’s the most convenient to visit driving home from work. Beware of the prices, they are extremely high, due to taxes.
